Fashion

Fashion is as much a passion for her as art.“I tend not to see the divide between the two.” She love culture. “I read, I go to the museum, to the opera, to the theater, to the cinema, I listen to a lot of music and I like to discuss these things with my friends”. Whereas Celia admits to having moved away from fashion, she admits that her relationship with it remains very personal: “I love discovering new designers, antiquing vintage pieces and touching the materials.”

The style

She defines her style as chic and classic, with a preference for the 70’s style and androgynous pieces, “I’m very tall, so menswear is also a playground for me.”

Projects

In progress? “Special orders for made-to-measure embroidered paintings, a large project of several pieces for the decoration of a chalet in the Alps, the artisanal production of a series of tufted wool rugs, embroidery workshops that I lead once a months at the studio and a project with the F&deO gallery which represents me in Madrid”.

Interiors

Light and space are of paramount importance to her. “I live here with my partner who is an illustrator and painter. The idea was for the apartment to be modular, functional and somewhat neutral in terms of decoration. It is therefore a cross between a comfortable house and an artist’s studio.
